Orville Magoon In Memoriam
Orville T. Magoon

Dear Orville, This Wednesday, July 18, would have been your 90th birthday, so Happy B-day! As a lasting tribute to your wonderful 87 years of life and your incredible career in coastal engineering, a grove of young evergreen trees has been planted in California's Klamath National Forest. As these trees grow and mature, they will help sustain that region's natural resources, similar to the sustainability concept you championed not only for the California coast but for coasts all around the world.
So proud to have known you all these many years, but deeply saddened you are gone. Your friend since CERC, 1972.
